Google, on its official blog, said –

To make sure billions more people can get access to computing, it’s important that entry-level devices are fully functioning smartphones that can browse the web and use apps. At Google I/O this year, we gave an early look at a project we called “Android Go” to make this possible. We’re excited to announce that this software experience—Android Oreo (Go edition)—is ready, and launching as a part of the Android 8.1 release tomorrow.

WHAT’S NEW IN ANDROID OREO GO? 

MORE STORAGE – We all know that if there is a phone with 8GB of internal storage, we are going to get only up to 5-6GB free space, thanks to all the pre-installed Google apps. With Android Oreo Go, the app size has decreased so phones with this version of Android will have 2X more available storage, thanks to 50% smaller app size.

FILES GO – Remeber that File Manager from Google that showed up on the Play Store and was later taken down? Well, that is specifically made for the phones running on ‘Go’ version of Android. With File Go, you can free up space on your phone, find files faster, and share them easily offline with others.

GOOGLE ASSISTANT GO – With this slimmed down version of Android, Google Assistant Go will also arrive which is a smaller size version of Google Assistant. It is going to launch fast, and hence you can search everything quickly.
